Joss Whedon Fans Jump the Gun

Perhaps still smarting from their precious Firefly being killed off so soon, Joss Whedon fans are already mobilizing to save his next show, Dollhousebefore the first episode airs.

The Underwire blog writes that rabid Whedonistas are activating, forming (which sounds like it’s for an entirely different kind of entertainment), organizing viewing parties of the trailer and encouraging people to buy the merchandise.

Not all fans are united though, as some fear all this nervous-nelly attention will create a backlash towards the show before it’s even begun. Networks like CBS are gun-shy of online fans after the resurrection of Jericho didn’t reinvigorate the ratings. More recently, the vampire drama Moonlight was unceremoniously sucked off air, despite Internet protests.
